Many Clearfield School activities have been affected greatly. Some activities are clubs. One club that is surviving this pandemic is the high school’s chapter of the Future Farmers of America Club. The FFA club is the largest youth organization in the world and installs leadership and success in career to students.

Any student can join the club but must participate in one agriculture class each year. The projects in the club are based off community service, fundraisers, and helping at agricultural events.

Chapter advisor Mrs. Carr students benefit from joining the club because it teacher leadership, allows students to travel and meet student from around the state, offers job opportunities, is great for college application, and provides for involvement in environmental events, demonstrations, and many other community group activities.

The club meets during activity periods, out of school meetings, and some virtual meetings. The club usually meets in the Agricultural Department. Due to the recent pandemic, they have gone virtual.

“FFA helps members prepare for careers in agribusiness, agriculture marketing, science, communications, education, horticulture, production, natural resources, forestry and many other diverse fields,” states Mrs. Carr.

Leaders of the club are as follows. The president of the club is Megan Durandetta, the vice president is Dakota Knepp, the secretary is Kyra Henry, the treasurer is Isaak Way, the historian is Toxie Korb, the chaplin is Josh Lutz, the parliamentarian is Kenny Shepler, and the reporter is Chloe Pfluger.

The FFA club will continue on during this pandemic and continue to prevail with the other surviving clubs and activities until everything is returned to normal.
